Slow stitch by slow stitch...
I have long been inspired by the work of this oh-so-talented wedding dress designer, who was featured in an old 1990 Victoria Magazine, A Tribute to The Art of Dressmaking. I often say, "If John can do it, I can do it." :)))
John Burbidge calls them "les petites dames de mode." For the last 11 years, John, who recently retired as a wedding dress designer for Priscilla of Boston, has painstakingly crafted two or three mannequins a year. Each is but 29 inches tall, marvelously and meticulously dressed. "To do this kind of work, you have to be a little mad!" John says.

In the meantime, the Piney runs deep and wild, and I have a zillion blades of grass to cut...
